    For anyone interested I believe I will have the ability to do programming very soon. I have made quite a bit of progress and hope to have the reprogramming method refined and ready within the next few weeks. Please stay tuned. You won't wanna miss this ;)

    Making even more progress! HMI has been updated to the newest software, which means Wifi compatibility ! OTA updates are enabled, meaning you will receive all future software updates for the HMI over a valid network connection! Also, the ability to download apps from the shop

    In the case that both need to be programmed together I`ll be happy to offer the viewers of this thread a 2 for 1 programming for their patience. I too have a dokus programmed HMI so I`ll be able to tell without a shadow of a doubt if both units need to be programmed together or if we can program the radio independent from the HMI. Cheers!

    There will not doubt in time with the passing days, weeks, months and years ahead, be a shift in interest from this K2 generation forum over to the new 2019-20XX T1 GM Trucks section. As a newer member to this forum I am still playing catch up to all the information about my truck, our trucks..... since about April. My purchase was a CPO used truck so this is why I am late to the party! I check in here every day, multiple times a day...……. to read & learn from all of your experiences and even share some of mine. May this K2 forum continue to thrive with new & existing members (and guests) of our outgoing generation! I hope you all continue to check back and chime in here now and then! After-all, Old Habits Die Hard

    For anyone following along I am once again waiting for parts. I was having issues with the radio module I had originally ordered. A new module is on order and should be installed and ready to go by the end of the week. Once I have full audio for everything I will make a post here, signalling we're good to go! Again, thank you so much for your patience in this. I appreciate it!

    Finally got my linex done. I had the rocker panels, the top part of my fenders and my mirror caps done. I'm happy with it. What's left are what still in in chrome. I'm blacking them all out.

    I was in the market for a new truck in the next year or so, then I saw the 2019's... Went and bought a 2018 to get the last of this body style. I'll be here for many, many years to come.

    Have you seen the Michael J Fox Edition Sierra/Silverado rolling down the road? Looks like the Toyota from Back to the Future. Anyway there is a really cool headlight switch with the option for Off-Road lights. Apparently with a long push of the button the BCM will latch the signal and provide a constant positive signal for triggering a relay. It will also illuminate the icon on the switch as well as send a signal to the cluster illuminating an amber light icon next to the fog light icon or “ORL” in amber. I successfully installed this in my wife’s ‘16 2500 Denali yesterday but from what I’ve read it’s the same for 1/2 tons, HDs, and Colorado/Canyon. The BCM already has Programing for this from the factory but I’m not sure when (how early) it was started. I have a ‘15 3500 that I’ll try soon as well as a friend’s ‘17 2500 to do soon. If the Programing hasn’t been done in my ‘15 I’ll still be able to get the switch to illuminate as well as latch a signal for positive or negative relay signaling using a latching relay. There are several variants of this switch. Some have blue background for ‘17+Up model years and red for ‘16+earlier. Additionally some have the ORL switch without Fogs, and some have no surround backlighting. Here is the video from yesterday’s install..... ......More videos to come for other uses like work lights, incorporating into the X50A, rear facing lights, non programmed trucks..... Pgamboa has been very helpful in discussion about this as well as providing schematic-Thank You!

    Well I went to the dealer and put a down payment on a 2018. It’s the exact truck I wanted. It was a little more than I had hoped but there were few other trucks optioned the way I wanted. I pick her up Saturday. I’m super excited. The only question I have now is I can wait to buy an extended warranty correct? I was planning on just saving up and paying for the warranty out of pocket instead of rolling it in to the monthly payments just to keep the amount financed lower. Thanks in advance.

    I can't be the only one to say it. The 2019s are so disappointing. And here's why for me, can anyone convince me otherwise? 1. No radar cruise control 2. Stop start garbage 3. No panoramic sunroof (not that I care, but I know most do) 4. All this R&D into dynamic fuel management and the mpg rating hasn't changed 5. Carbon fiber bed? Waste of R&D 6. You can't get the 6.2 or the 10 speed in the lower trimmed trucks 7. Gauge cluster actually looks worse than the outgoing model's (cheap but more feature laden) 8. No classic square arches 9. Looks way too overstyled, the "old" truck was a handsome beast 10. Still waxing frames after all these years 11. The box sides are now so tall that unless you're Yao Ming, you can't reach over the sides 12. The engine bay is now more cramped and for no reason, the radiators have been pushed back towards the engine and there's a brace on either side of the engine that encroach on the space around it What exactly is the benefit of getting a new truck? As far as I can tell they made it worse. Think I'll be keeping my 17 for a long time!

    It’s my b day today so decided to treat myself to some tint! Not totally in love with the front windshield strip, but it’s a $20 experiment. Front windows tinted to a legal 35% here in Illinois. Midwest glass tinters in oak lawn did an awesome job! Waterfowler 41’s Youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/brittmork

    Been a while since I have posted, but I have a new project going that some may find useful. I have always liked big bass but since having a family I couldn’t take out the back seat and run subs like I used to back in the day. I have been running dual 8” subs under the back seat for about a year now but it just wasn’t enough for me although it sounded great for every day listening. I found Nitchbox Designs on Facebook and got them to build a center console to house a 12” w7. Subwoofer should be here by Tuesday next week. I just wanted to post some pics of the top notch work these guys do, excited to get it installed. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Not my truck. Had a local fellow drop his truck off for some work. Illuminated Handles with LED Switchbacks Installed. 1A/AM Auto Mirror with LED Switchbacks installed. Mirrors retained Power Fold, Mirror Memory, Key Fob Fold, Reverse Tilt and all the other functions of his DL3 Mirror (except driver side Dimming of course). I didn’t perform any of the retrofits, just physical installation and wiring. Before: After: Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Picked up a Cajun Red High Country on Sunday and thus starts the build thread. There is so much unnecessary shit on the the HC but I LOVE IT!! This thing is beast. I've logged 200 miles in the first couple days and have no complaints yet other than... chrome. I hate chrome and it won't be on this thing for long. Pictures will come in the next couple days. I don't hold back when modding and this is going to be a city/travel rig for hauling clients and the family around. I have a JKU Hard Rock for crawling over shit in the forest! PSA - Don't let the dealer wash your truck on delivery. They will F* it up guaranteed. On delivery my truck has more spiderwebbing than my Jeep which is immaculate except for where tree branches got it :). With a little care your vehicle will only wear the necessary damage. Just say no to car washes and do it yourself!

    So. There are new lift adapters out for Rotary and Challenger, which are GM Dealer Equipment lift partner suppliers. They are 2 inches wider than the standard adapters that come with the lifts. They are available to all GM dealers from the lift manufacturers. Dealers have been sent multiple a message in regards to this, as well as from GM's dealer training portal. I believe lifts that have the flip pads have wider adapters available already and have for a few years now. If a dealer doesn't have these yet, either they have them ordered, or they are plain ignorant. We have some on order where I'm at. They can get damaged with narrower adapters because those raised lips on the ends (pictured and on the flip up pads) would puncture. The frame would be held only by those two lips, and not the full pad. Tech who knows no better + didn't read/do the training = damaged frame front. Pictured below is the secondary frame lifting point, which is the wide front section. The last picture with the round pad and round frame unit is intended to be the primary front of frame lifting point.

    Go with the Falken Wildpeak AT3W. Best AT tires out there for wet traction, much better value than the BFG KO2. I have had them on my truck for 20k+ miles and still love them. Great tires.

    First post here all.. just left the Ford club and picked up a new Silverado Thursday.. mods so far include bullring tie downs in the bed, drivers side assist handle, Tyger tonneau cover, GM rubber bed mat, GM plastic tailgate liner (dealer gave it to me for free! - Ford never did that) and a few more to come. Took it for a 400km drive today and averaged 9.6/100km .. got a total of 450km on the truck so far.. really impressed with the mileage of this truck.

    I’m as hardcore GM as they come. Ugliest pickup design I have ever seen imho. Extremely disappointed. Went out and bought an ‘18 off the lot so I’d have a nice looking truck until the next re-design. To each his own, but not for me. Take the new tweeks to the ‘19 Camaro along with you. I’d actually buy a Mustang over the Camaro in ‘19. Sad.

    I hate to hear of your misfortunate experience, but in all my years around vehicles and GM trucks in general.... I never would have settled for having the interior modified by a dealer on a brand new vehicle. That is what options and vehicle swapping are for. Bottom line is the dealer should have traded a vehicle they had for the truck you wanted with another dealer. I have done this several times no issues at all. Most dealers are willing to work together on vehicle trades. Good luck with your headache. There is nothing like having the feeling of Regret while making any vehicle payment

    Installed RGB+W footwell lighting. LEDs are on full brightness for the photo. I turn them down to the dimmest setting for a more 'factory' look. Also under the driver and passenger front seats for the rear footwells (not pictured)
